3. Mailboxes: Oldies but Goodies > Analyzing Your Own Mail Data

Analyzing Your Own Mail Data

The Enron mail data makes for great illustrations in a chapter on mail analysis, but you’ll almost certainly want to take a closer look at your own mail data. Fortunately, many popular mail clients provide an “export to mbox” option, which makes it pretty simple to get your mail data into a format that lends itself to analysis by the techniques described in this chapter. For example, in Apple Mail, you can select some number of messages, pick “Save As…” from the File menu, and then choose “Raw Message Source” as the formatting option to export the messages as an mbox file (see Figure 3-7). A little bit of searching should turn up results for how to do this in most other major clients.
